family at the expense of her own mental health Now Sean is back and tries to get her to see why she must come clean This was a great start to a brand new series and I cannot wait to see how the additional stories play out After a frightening experience fighting wildfires in the Big Canyon wilderness, Sean Marcus vowed to go back home to Jupiter Point, California He wants to show the townspeople that the former bad boy is truly reformed, and he will be the superintendent of the Jupiter Point HotShots, the wildfire crew Thirteen years before, Sean fled the town in utter disgrace,

wilderness, Sean Marcus vowed to go back home to Jupiter Point, California He wants to show the townspeople that the former bad boy is truly reformed, and he will be the superintendent of the Jupiter Point HotShots, the wildfire crew Thirteen years before, Sean fled the town in utter disgrace, he wants to set things straight As the new leader, he is invited to the town council meeting to greet the people Then he sees her, a gorgeous woman, whom he didn t recognise at first Last time he saw her was thirteen years ago, when she was fourteen, and it landed him in jail Evie, who works in the Sky View Gallery, is president of the business coalition and also present at the town council meeting, she never expected Sean to be there but Evie had never forgotten him And when their eyes meet, the intense sexual chemistry they both experience stuns them both Everyone knows that Jennifer Bernard knows her firefighting I must admit I m terrified of fires, and her descriptions are so realistic, I was nearly living my worst nightmare and that s one heck of a compliment Ms Bernard s paints her fictional town in vivid colours, and I got the feeling I knew the people as well as the characters did Sean has an extraordinarily interesting backstory I wanted to know every little detail of his past SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE is a bit difficult to review without giving away any spoilers, so suffice it to say that the villain is one smarmy, despicable character, who is also fabulously fascinating and will make your skin crawl Evie has secrets that only Sean knows, and while I will not judge how she deemed to deal with her issue in the past everyone copes differently I was rather perplexed at how she decided to handle her personal issue in the present in her dealings with Sean, and I also had problems with how she dealt with the public side of her predicament This will seem very obscure if you have not read the book, but when you do, you will know what I m talking about, and you might or might not agree While I really liked Sean, I never warmed up to Evie, I just couldn t understand the decisions she made, how she saw things.Ms Bernard s writing is a fluid and eloquent as always and I m thrilled that my favourite character will star in this series next instalment, and no, I m not telling I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This was my first time reading this author, though the blurb seemed very interesting Sadly, I was very bored with the entire book I felt that Evie and Sean went from enemies to lovers very quickly, and it really wasn t realistic I also had a hard time connecting with either of them, which made their romance also hard to believe The plot wasn t as engaging as I d hoped it would be either I felt that there wasn t enough details about the firefighting aspect of the plot, that it was a missed op This was my first time reading this author, though the blurb seemed very interesting Sadly, I was very bored with the entire book I felt that Evie and Sean went from enemies to lovers very quickly, and it really wasn t realistic I also had a hard time connecting with either of them, which made their romance also hard to believe The plot wasn t as engaging as I d hoped it would be either I felt that there wasn t enough details about the firefighting aspect of the plot, that it was a missed opportunity The building of a firefighting base would have been very interesting to read about I think I ll pass on this author in the future A wonderful start to Ms Bernard s new Jupiter Point series The characters are well developed, complex and very likable The story is captivating and holds your attention from start to finish This is a must read I can t wait to see what Ms Bernard has in store for the next book Highly recommend ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review. Very nice start to this new series Love me some firefighters. Good This was the first book that I ve read by this author and it most certainly won t be the last I really did enjoy this book Bad boy turn fire fighter says it all really I loved the characters, the setting, the storyline, and everything in between I d definitely say it is worth the read I even laughed at many of the funny lines from secondary characters It was a perfect balance. Evie and Sean were perfect one another You knew they were meant to be I loved watching their relationship grow Love the Jupiter Point saying Remember to Look Up at the Stars
